Feel like the only person with struggles ^in the Christian life?  Wonder if anyone else has traveled the same road?  ^Millions of Christians have cherished John Bunyan's allegorical tale of the journey ^Christian and Christiana made to the Celestial City.  Written in the 1600s, ^this immortal classic is now available in a modern-day, understandable text.

Christian ^leaves his home in the City of Destruction and begins a long journey to the Celestial ^City.  His adventure is full of encounters with interesting people such as ^Faithful, Hopeful, and Ignorance.  Traveling through places such as Vanity ^Fair and the Valley of the Shadow of Death, he reaches his heavenly home but learns ^rich lessons during the journey.  The story has immediate application to everyday ^life.

Later on, Christian's wife, Christiana, decides to join her husband ^in the Celestial City.  As she travels, Christiana comes upon a different set ^of people--Greatheart, Mercy, Honesty, and others.  Her story illustrates how ^Christians follow different paths but with the same destination--eternity with Jesus.

Meet the Authors

John Bunyan

John Bunyan (1628-1688) was born in Elstow, England, and his life was spared twice in his early years, something he believed God had done for a special purpose. In November 1660, when Bunyan arrived to preach in the little town of Lower Samsell, he was informed that a warrant had been issued for his arrest. Unwilling to denounce his Christian faith and his calling to the ministry, he was imprisoned for twelve years.

Among the many writings he published during his imprisonment are The Holy City; Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners; and the most famous, The Pilgrims Progress.

After his release, he became the pastor of a church in Bedord, England and continued to write and publish stirring works that have endured through time. Among these classics are The Holy War; Bunyan's Visions of Heaven and Hell and Journey to Hell: The Life and Death of Mr. Badman.
